A Few Tips for Highly Sensitive Peoplehttps://www.brionnaned.com/understanding-embodiment

I shared this on linkedin this morning and thought I should also share it here. I hope someone finds it supportive.

Hi there highly sensitive people,

If you're highly sensitive it simply means your nervous system has a more intense response to stimuli than other people's nervous systems. And when there's a lot of stimuli like there are right now and they're extra traumatic like they are right now, you may find that you benefit from the following:*reduce your screen time, especially first thing in the morning and at night before bed

*move more slowly. give yourself more time to wake up in the morning and make a really good breakfast. indulge in making a perfect cup of coffee or your perfect morning beverage. give yourself more time to wind down at night. my favorite thing to do is to turn on off my phone early, light a candle and turn on the classical music radio station while I stretch for 45ish minutes.

*don't engage in conversations or other activities that relate to said stimuli before you're ready. if people start to talk to you about it, politely decline and say you aren't ready to talk about it yet. BOUNDARIES are your friend right now.

*commit to getting outside and getting some fresh air. go for a walk. open the windows in your home. let some energy move into and refresh your space and your body.

*reflect on your feelings. write them down in a journal. it's important to give yourself space to process what's coming up for you.

These tips are especially relevant if you work for a corporation and have to interact with other people every day. Try them out.

Thanks so much for sharing! :) I began to sign up but saw that the date available on the calendar is the 11th, not the 10th -- does this mean the 10th is booked?
